ARW Dumb Questions

Recommended Posts

Are casters supposed to have Dispel Barrier and Move Mountains spells when clearing Slime Pit?

 

Are panel's buttons in upper lvl supposed to be pressed in some order?

There are piercing crystals and stoneshatter scrolls in the Slime Pit. You don't need to know those spells to get to the blocked areas.

 

No, there's no particular order required.

You also can wait until later in the game to explore those areas when you have the spells.

I keep notes in a text file of all locks, barriers, boulders and other impediments I can't pass when I first encounter them so I don't forget to return once I have the right spells or gear.

where the heck Squiggus is supposed to be? I'm up to Lorelei (will clear bears soon) but still haven't find Squiggus.

Squiggus is along the east coast and is easiest to get to by heading north through the undead from the southeast corner of Valorim. Make a few different saves because there are a few ways to mess up in that area.

Well already messed up bit cuz killed 1 nephil squad near that nephil village so not welcome there (doubt missed something urgent).

 

so trogs are next, what should i do with them, kill'em all or make a deal with vahkok and later kill him after reporting?

 

giants will be killed naturally.

 

faster travelling would be nice since it takes ages to get from east coast to fort emergence (and from f e to portal fortress or erika's tower) and elsewhere (main reason why haven't taken any timed delivery quests). prolly have been spoiled by pylons in 2nd trilogy but still.

No, you are in for a long slog through lots of things starting with going through the Giant caves southeast of Lorelei to locate a map in the treasure chamber. You need the map to reveal the entrance to a hidden tunnel and lots of puzzles.

apparently I need orb of thralni to get into guiant's castle since can't find any normal way into there, bit exploring and then back to Emergence to chase orb thieves.

search in the cliff south of Lorelei, you'll come to a place which has a pool of lava and some stone walls, thats "grindstone" or the giant town.

 

pd. where are you from?

not sure what ciiff you mean since only cliffs south or anywhere near lorelei require orb of thralni. only cliff/tunnel which seems to lead to giant's castle is east from anama facility and unless I'm missing something then orb required. gotta visit in emergence after turning in zik quest to see if its time for orb chase (what I remember of it from Avernum 3 it was stupid chase).

 

if you are asking from me then europe.

To get to the Giant caves you need to fight a battle with them at the wall blocking the way to the cave entrances.

what randomizer said, and how dare you call the chase stupid! it's people who are willing to die by teleportation into solid rock... they deserve some respect

I think I'm at wrong gates of he....... giants castle (near Lorelei) since can't get inside gates, I guess right place is in thieves territory  or up north.

have you done the troglo king quest? the one where you have to go under castle troglo?

Spoiler

remember the part under troglo castle? (halls of concordance) where there's a great barrier? think that in the other side of the barrier it has to be where the giant castle is (they're enemies) so the giant castle has to be behind the castle troglo.. hope that gives you an idea

Killed Echlio and completed that quest and completed Sharamik's papers quest and then completed other quest by killing trog's king (and every1 else in castle) and still barriers stood up and I have quest from Lorelei to get soldiers free and get their equipments but no access to giants castle. I guess I have to go thru Fiery Pit to get there since that is only option I can think.

 

Hawke's mansion's 1st bedroom has button which opens something but what? Is big empty place next (south) from mansion accessible or not?

Hawke's Mansion has a second button nearby to finish opening the area for the first button.

 

From Lorelei go south and then east along the mountains until you reach a wall blocking a gap and go south through the gate. You may need to click south of the gate to pass into it and the fight. No need for a fiery pit.

Finally got in, no matter where I had prev. clicked no fighting option. Last soldier was well hidden although.

 

Now I just need following spells (at cheapest price): Heal (ToM), Mass Healing (Shaydar/Sharamik?), Move Mountains (Shaydar/Sharamik?), Dispel Barrier (Shaydar/Calloc?)

Is or isn't there landpath to Shayder? Seems that no path to that godforsaken town.

You need to take a boat from Farport, Softport, or Marish.

Edited by Randomizer
Wrong town name
